accomplish as secretary of state? >> well, first, i think she did the basic job of representing the united states abroad tirelessly and well. she was very good in public forums. she would-- when she visited countries like pakistan, meet with audiencees, take questions, be very visible. as secretary, she did not have a record of substantial negotiation-- a la henry kissinger, jim baker. it's hard to find things like that on in her record, but on representational side, very strong performance. also in terms of being loyal to president obama. the obama white house was concerned in the beginning, that this superstar, part of team clinton, was going to over-shadow the president and the white house. they were very controlling sometimes in how they methods foreign policy, but secretary clinton never stepped on anybody's toes. she always left it to the president to take the lead on things. so i think that was a sign that she was a team player. i find, charlie, more people from both parties today saying that they thought she did a good job, and that she showed that she has real depth. then you woul

.b.m. company. what did jim grant do? >> jim grant was the head of unicef, the united nations organization thinking about children. and organizations like that, you know, talk about all the right things. but what he saw was that the vaccines weren't getting out to all the kids. only 25% of the world's kids were getting vaccines. and he decided he would build a measurement system-- this is in 1980. he built one that measured facts and coverage, and he would go and embarrass the political leaders whose countries had low numbers, praisethe ones who did it well. it was cheap snuff so incredibly impactful that he got vaccination from 25% up to over 70%. he saved more lives between 19 eighty and 1990 when he did that than anyone in all of history ever has, and yet, you know, he's not -- >> rose: known by many people. >> yeah, very obscure. when i went to buy the book about him, it was completely out of print. so it's impress they have it was a measurement system along with his moral correctness that let him achieve that dramatic result. >> rose: but the interesting thing, too swhen they stopped
the bricks but three of the bricks bricks are facing head wind greater than we have seen in the united states, not brazil, which is developing increasingly becoming more regularized but in the china and russia, and i go back to the beginning. >> ros the risk is what going to hpen to them? >> the risks are different for different countries but in many of these emerging markets, they are actually facing significant internal political head wind and lacked the political will to continue with economic reform and they will be punished by the markets, in some cases they are not emerging at all, but submerging and backsliding, russia is certainly a case of that where you look at everything about the russian investment climate and look at the brain drain they are experiencing and the capital flight they are experiencing. >> rose: and look at the demographics. >> look at the demographics, they are improving a little but not enough and you see aotry that by no means should be a bric and should not be an emerging market, one quick point, back when the u.s. was having its election you had so many corporat
